Organisers have announced the first of their headliners for Stockton Calling 2023, a day-long music festival which takes place in Stockton-On-Tees across multiple venues and spaces on Saturday 8 April 2023.
The melodic indie rock outfit Circa Waves will be the headline act for The Point stage at ARC, Stockton Arts Centre.
Circa Waves were formed in Liverpool in 2013 with their melodic, propulsive rock sound, heavily inspired by the British indie rock scene around them at the time. Early successes led them to become a signed artist with Transgressive Records (the home of Foals, The Subways and Mystery Jets). The band have toured the world over, and released a fair few albums from which they’re hit the UK album charts a number of times with hits such as T-Shirt Weather, Do You Wanna Talk, Lemonade and Movies.
Jimmy Beck, one of the festival organisers from KU Promotions said about the announcement;
“We are absolutely delighted with Circa Waves signing up for Stockton Calling. Their records constantly raise the roof on a weekend at KU so we know this one will go off on the day. Can’t wait.”
Starts: 12pm | Sat 8 April 2023
Age Restriction: 14+ event. 14’s – 17’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Ticket Price: £35 available here
